Can personal responsibility carry on after death?


Here is the set-up. Wealthy person A substantially damages expensive property of wealthy person B. Prior to settlement of the claim in court, both A and B die. Can the estate of B carry on the suit for damages against the estate of A? (I do have a purpose behind this strange question.)
